Abstract

The Northern Forest Futures database (NFFDB) supports the reporting of both current and projected future forest conditions for the 20 states that make up the U.S. North, an area bounded by Maine, Maryland, Missouri, and Minnesota. The NFFDB database and attendant reporting tools are available to the public as a Microsoft AccessTM database. The NFF_CurrentReports tool generates customized reports for a variety of forest statistics for the 2008 inventory year. The NFF_ProjectionReports program supports the reporting of projected forest statistics by decade through the year 2060 for any of 14 scenarios that reflect varying climatic and socioeconomic possibilities. A description is provided detailing how the NFFDB was constructed using projections from the Forest Dynamics Model (FDM) combined with data from the U.S. Forest Service's Forest Inventory and Analysis database (FIADB).
